I have made the decision to take off one week of training. This decision is very difficult as my workout routine has become a part of my day like the morning sunrise. I noticed yesterday that the glands around my throat are getting swollen, which has always been an indication to me that I may be getting sick. I am flying out Thursday to see family in Denver, Colorado and it is important to me that I am not sick during this trip. I will try to get as much sleep as I can this week, drink plenty of water and allow myself the time to heal. It is also a good time for me to adjust my diet to more plant based, and take in as much nature into my body to strengthen my immune system. I will resume training next Monday after I return from Colorado.
As I went out to the garage this morning it seemed so so strange to just walk past the treadmill and bowflex knowing that I will not be using them for a week. They have become such a great part of my morning routine that it almost feel personal that I simply walk past them.
Holistically speaking, I am out of balance and need the time to find that balance and readjust. I will take time to relax and meditate to rediscover those things that have been lost and bring them back into existence in my life. It is a time to start drinking herbal tea again and eating the harvest of nature’s bounty. It is a time to read, discover, learn and enjoy. It is a time to heal.
